[detection of the west nile virus and its genetic typing in ixodid ticks (parasitiformes: ixodidae) in tomsk city and its suburbs].four tick species, ixodes persulcatus, i. pavlovskyi, i. trianguliceps, and dermacentor reticulatus, were found in tomsk and its suburbs in 2006. the species i. pavlovskyi was found to be dominant in the localities situated in tomsk city, and i. persulcatus was dominant in its suburbs. viral rna and viral antigen of the west nile virus (wnv) were detected in the ticks i. pavlovskyi and i. persulcatus collected in the city and its suburbs by the rt pcr method and enzyme immunoassay with monoclona ...200818727366
[genetic diversity of ixodid tick-borne pathogens in tomsk city and suburbs].we studied two urban and two suburban biotypes of tomsk city for tick-transmitted diseases prevalence in naturally collected ticks. tick-borne encephalitis virus (tbev) was found in 6.5% of tick samples, west nile virus (wnv) in 2.2%, borrelia spp. in 8%, rickettsia spp. in 2.5%, and ehrlichia spp. in 1.7% of samples. genetic markers of powassan virus, bartonella spp., and balbesia spp. were not found. analysis of the genetic diversity of revealed pathogens resulted in the following conclusions: ...200919957906
